If you haven’t been to Splashy Fen yet, then you need to know that it’s the best possible way to spend the Easter weekend – for families, friends, young or old… in fact anyone who loves good music, outdoor fun and a getaway to the gorgeous Underberg in KZN
A memory-making, music-loving, digital-detoxing, nature-living, good-vibes-only festival
Before you know it, you’ll be loosening your tie, braiding your hair and getting stuck into a 4-day family-centric festival that offers music for everyone; from pop to dance, reggae, blues, and the mandatory foot-stomping, harmonica-blowing, banjo-strumming sounds that fans of all ages keep coming back for.
And of course, in true Splashy Fen style… there’s more!
Fans can prepare themselves not just for a handful of never before seen international musicians and a host of local South African talent; but additional showers, exciting recycling initiatives, improved ablution blocks, a new and improved interactive mobile app, a curated collection of food and craft vendors, a cocktail deck overlooking the beautiful Mzimude river, updated décor attractions and an impressive main stage structure that speaks to Splashy’s promise of continual experiential upgrades.

The 2020 lineup
It’s been 31 years since two friends sat down and had the bright idea to throw a music festival on their farm. Today, festival organisers Impi Concept Events have secured some seriously epic artists to perform on the Splashy Fen Main Stage and they shared the lineup with fans and media at a launch party at Kingston Beach Club at Kings Park Stadium last night (6 February).
Guests were entertained with live acts Chic Muya, Rubber DUC and Veranda Panda and the 8pm #Splashy2020 announcement left everyone cheering as the lineup was announced.
These are just some of the musicians and bands that you can look forward to at Splashy Fen in April:
The Pierce Brothers
Desmond and the Tutus
The Ndlovu Youth Choir
Jagermeister Brass Cartel
If the main stage lineup from the last four years is anything to go by, there’s no doubt that fans will start counting the sleeps until South Africa’s friendliest festival gets underway on Thursday 9 April.
